Visual Basic Script Help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

We use a boot cd with winpe to launch a vbs script and load data from another dvd. Now we have some machines that don't come with dvdrom drives, older optiplex 520s and so on. No I've managed to get the script that it loads.

Here it is:

set objscripting = wscript.createobject("wscript.shell")
set FSO = createobject ("scripting.filesystemobject")
set coldrives = FSO.drives
for each objdrive in coldrives
if objdrive.drivetype=4 then
answer=MsgBox("Would you like to install the image?",4,"Image install")
if answer = 6 then

wscript.echo("Enter the Imaging DVD into the "&objdrive&" drive")
objscripting.run("cmd /c start rdeployt -md -f "&driveletter&":\image.exe")
end if
end if

Is it possible to edit the code so it loads from a portable harddrive and not a dvdrom? As far as I've googled, changing:

if objdrive.drivetype=4 then


if objdrive.drivetype=1 then

should do it. Am I correct? Is there other changes to the script that would be needed?

What exactly are you trying to copy between the machines and how often does this data copying occurs? I am not 100% sure what you are trying to do? Could you please be more specific so I can help you with your query.
